Our Mission

The mission of the Seminole County Public Schools is to ensure that all Early Childhood Program and PreK-Grade 12 students acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be productive citizens in our great country and in the global economy. 

Progress Monitoring Assessment (Discovery Education)

The final Progress Monitoring Assessment for all grades in Math and Language Arts and Grade 8 Science will be conducted from February 2 - 23.  There will be a modified schedule from Feb. 2 - 20 to allow for extended time (80 minutes) during the testing period for students to complete the assessment.  Please encourage your children to do their best on the assessments.  Teachers use the information to determine if students have successfully mastered benchmarks and if they have achieved proficiency for material included in the Florida Standards Assessment (Reading, Math, Science) and for End of Course Exams (Algebra, Geometry, Biology). It is essential that students are in attendance for their scheduled assessment. 

Teague will be utilizing block scheduling between Feb. 2 - 13 on Monday through Thursday, with a regular school day with seven periods on Fridays. During the week of Feb. 16 - 20, the block schedule will be used Tuesday through Friday, due to the holiday on Feb. 16.   When students are scheduled for makeup testing on the days with regular bell schedule, they will be allowed 80 minutes for testing, just as with the block schedule.  Please access the modified bell schedule and the testing schedule by clicking on the links below.

FSA, FCAT and SBA Testing

Parents,

During the months of March, April and May students will be taking a number of state mandated tests, including the Florida Standards Assessment for Writing, Language Arts, and Math for all grades, the FCAT Science (8th grade) and state and district end of course exams.  For your convenience, a  general schedule is provided below and more information will be available as specific schedules are developed for each type of exam.  Our schedule will be full, since all grades are tested and students take most of the exams on the computer, with the exception of Grade 6,7 Writing and Grade 8 Science.  We will be testing as late as the last day of school for students. It is extremely important that all students be present for these tests.  The state assessment exams can not be made up after the window is closed for an exam.

Upstanders

The UpStanders is Teague's Anti-Bullying Club. Our focus is to increase awareness about bullying issues and to teach students how to be an UpStander instead of a bystander. The UpStander Club, under the supervision of Ms. Argrett (Dean) and Ms. Struck (leadership Teacher) will plan homeroom activities for the entire school which will focus on character, empathy, compassion and strategies to eliminate bullying on our campus. In addition to homeroom activities, the UpStanders will make an effort to cover the school with positive messages via posters and flyers. The Upstanders club will meet every other Wednesday from 3:05 P.M. until 4:00 P.M in the media center. The next scheduled meeting will be October 8, 2014.   Mrs. Bailey Robb (Up stander Coordinator from the Holocaust Memorial center & Education Center of Florida) supported our group during our September 24, 2014 meeting. Mrs. Robb kept the students engaged as they participated in a get to know me activity.

Student ID Cards

Dear Teague Family,

In the interest of safety and security Teague is providing Student Identification Cards to all students. The expectation is that EVERY student will wear their card at all times.

In addition to the all-important safety issue, the ID’s will expedite cafeteria service. Student’s bar code on the IDs are tied to café accounts to speed up the process and decreasing the wait time in line for everyone. The cards will also be used in the office, discipline, after-school tutorial as well as other programs and services throughout the school.

Once student IDs are distributed replacing IDs will be easy. Lost, stolen, altered, damaged and defaced ID Cards must be replaced IMMEDIATELY with a temporary card until a permanent replacement can be created.

·        Students are encouraged to purchase a replacement card for $5.

·        Replacement lanyards will be available for $1.

·        Students who have not taken their school picture will receive temporary IDs until the new cards are created after picture retake day October 7.
